Berkshire Scouts Mountain Team is here to support all leaders in getting their young people out in to the mountains and wildernesses of the UK.
We run regular weekends and evening workshops throughout the year for any adult involved in Scouting in Berkshire to develop their skills. The intention of these weekends and workshops is to provide leaders with a progressive series of events culminating in a successful assessment for a hillwalking permit, the qualification required to taking young people out into the hills.
Through our training programme we aim to cover the full range of skills sets right through from those first learning how to read a map and use a compass to those at the top of their game who want to master crampons and ice axes in full-on winter conditions.
Whilst our main focus is our weekend programme we have an active Facebook group that exists to provide support and a sense of community to all leaders in Berkshire. It’s a great place to ask questions, discuss upcoming trips or show off with photos of your recent mountain adventures.
You’ll find most of the county training team on there along with existing and aspirant permit holders. To keep it to Scout leaders it’s a private group so please have your membership number handy.
